Explained: Why Pirates’ Case Took Longer Than Chiefs’…

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 23, 2018 08:45 PM
Questions were asked regarding the length of time between the charging and sanction of Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs, with one case taking 14 months and other just over two weeks.
 
Pirates were charged after events at Loftus Versfeld Stadium last year during a defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns, while Chiefs found themselves in hot water following unsavoury scenes at FNB Stadium as they were beaten by Chippa United.
 
There has been an unwanted rise in violent incidents at PSL games of late, something that has been acknowledged by the PSL’s Chairman, and owner of Orlando Pirates, Dr. Irvin Khoza.
 
The Siya crew spoke to the PSL’s Luxolo September for some clarity on the situation, who explained why there can be such a delay in cases, despite the charges being of a similar nature.
 
He told the crew, “Look, you’ll appreciate that no case is ever the same. There will always be similarities and differences. You have to look at the simple matter of the fact that Kaizer Chiefs pleaded guilty, simplifying the whole thing, whereas Pirates exercised their right to contest and ask for documentation, therefore there was a back and forth.
 
“The Chairman tried to explain today that there’s a lot of documentation back and forth that was requested, and that’s perfectly within their rights. Sometimes you and I can commit the same offences, but if I plead guilty and you don’t then I’m only appearing once in court and you’re there for two years. Even if it’s the same offence that we’re alleged to have committed. You have to look at it from that point of view.
 
“If you ask for more documentation and the results of whatever, then that takes another hearing. At the next hearing you ask them to go test something, then that takes more time. Also, a case isn’t just going to appear next week, because of senior counsel and so on.”
 
September went on to say, “I know there is this theory that somebody is getting preferential treatment, but it’s all romantic to throw conspiracy theories. There’s always a gap between theory and reality though.”
 
Meanwhile, Chiefs have since been charged with ‘bringing the League into disrepute and misconduct’ following the violence that took place at Moses Mabhida Stadium as they were kicked out of the Nedbank Cup over the weekend.

AND EVEM IN POLITICS WE DON'T CHOOSE THE PRESIDENT, ONLY FEW PEOPLE WHO DOES THE ELECT OF THE PRESIDENT FOR THE ENTIRE NATION, THE NATION' S TASK IS TO CHOOSE THE PARTY

@setlaboswana even soccerladuma editors they crooked us by not doing the investigations earlier about what happened at Loftus. Now you allow them to feed you about things they never be interested from the first place to feed us with.

We formed Kaizer Motaung and fertilize him as well until he grow upper tooth to leave us with peace. We never show him the middle finger if not to wish him, good luck.

Even when it comes to let's put money on the table to buy a player, Motaungs they never find the inner peace.
